    Anyone think of using RP to help create magical items? Perhaps in place of the XP for 3E or some such thing? I think it cost XP to make magical items in 3E correct?

    Yes, it cost's XP, if you create a magic item in 3rd edition (and you must have the right feat as well). Even gods can't create magic items without spending XP (but they have enough of these)!

    No, I havn't thought of RPs for item creation until yet. A not too bad idea! In 2nd Edition a priest must spend RPs, if he creates a relic (see "book of priestcraft" ), but otherwhise I don't know of this. How many RPs you want to spend for a magic item in 3rd edition (it costs you min. 500 XP to create a better item, but a normal regent can't spend 500 RP, never even 50!) Further in the realm it would not be well seen, if the regent spends attention (RPs) to something for himself instead of the realm (creating a road f.e.). Only if the creator is a wizard without a realm (but with sources), he can do with his RPs, what he want's!

    I think a lot of people though of that, and we use that option in
    ItSoD2.

    I would support adding the spending of R.P.s to create items. This would limit the creation of items to those that are blooded and thus limit the amount of said items in the world. Remember, I believe magic items should be rare.

    The way I suggest is to make the R.P. cost 1/10 of the experience cost. This would make it truly rare. A cleric would hardly ever spend R.P. in this way unless it was for the benefit of others and thus it would limit it to the low number of blooded wizards in the world.

    I think the Consecrate relic gives enough guidelines regarding how the mage can create magical items. However, if you say that you need to spend RP to make magical items, you are forbidding the non holding owners from being able to create magical items and that is not fair to them. So, it is a good idea, but not very well thought of... at least not yet :)

    I think the idea is that a character could use RP instead of XP to create
    magic items, not that only RP could be used.

    I don't have a problem with eliminating non-holding wizards from being able to create magic items. It would reduce the over all number made to help keep such items rare.

    No Gary, I would require RP in addition to XP. To further make it more difficult to create magic items. I don't feel the restrictions from Travis Doom go far enough in creating the magic item rare world that was intended for Birthright and helps make Birthright what it is!

    Actually it would push many of them into the priestly creation camp. This
    might effect some of the caster levels or precise powers of the item.

    I believe I covered this argument by indicating that Priests wouldn't be creating a lot of these magic items. Only a few that would benefit a great amount of People. Priests would not be in the business of creating a great number of holy artifacts. Especially if it cost them R.P. and X.P.!!!
